|IeSF's official rankings of national teams.|
No matter how well they do, there will be those on the side-lines who will always criticize the few that excel.
Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA), through hard-work and dedication, was ranked 5th by the IeSF for administration, and 14th for gaming, in 2017.
This is no mean feat when you consider the teams above South Africa, or the teams with which South Africa is tied (Tunisia and Switzerland).
The rankings of the SA eSports Team since 2011 are:
|2016||Jakarta – Indonesia||14th|
|2015||Seoul – South Korea||12th|
|2014||Baku – Azerbaijan||13th|
|2013||Bucharest – Romania||10th|
|2012||Cheonan – South Korea||18th|
